Hybrid desserts are a great way to combine the best parts of two different sweets into one ultimate dish such as these pumpkin cheesecake pie by Food52. The dessert fuses together the thick, flakey crust of pumpkin pie with a filling made from rich cream cheese, pumpkin puree and cider flavoring to create a decadent autumnal dessert that is sure to wow guests.

Incorporating a pie crust as the shell of a cheesecake is a genius idea since the crust will hold up will to the dense, creamy filling made from sugar, spices, apple cider and heavy cream. Rather than having a pie shell cover the filling, the dessert is left uncovered like a cheesecake typically is and an be topped with sliced apples for decoration.
